Sabiri shoulder setback 'serious'

6th December 2018, 13:03 by Aidan Perkins

David Wagner has said Hamid Sabiri's shoulder injury is "serious" amid worries the midfielder may miss several weeks.

Sabiri lasted just three minutes when coming on as a sub in the 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth on Tuesday as he fell awkwardly on his shoulder.

The Terriers' medical staff are still assessing the problem but there are concerns he could miss the entire Christmas and early new year schedule.

Wagner said: "Hamid Sabiri has a serious shoulder injury and we will have to make further investigations as to how long he will be out."

Sabiri had come on against the Cherries for Terence Kongolo but the news on him is less worrying as Wagner confirmed he had just run out of steam at the Vitality Stadium.

The Town boss added: "Terence was not injured but he suffered fatigue, which is not a surprise after the injury he had and the fact he has now played a lot of games, including this midweek one.

"That's why I was a little bit uncertain before the game if he would be able to start. He got fatigue and he gave the sign that he had to come off."
